Welcome to The Makehouse!

We offer a unique series of creative workshops giving you new skills and the satisfaction of making something beautiful with your own two hands!

Our series of workshops are for people who value traditional hand-crafted  skills and creative self-satisfaction, but want projects which are filled with imagination, style and fun.  We’ll show you that you don’t need to be a professional to design and make beautiful things.

To fit into your busy life, we provide all the equipment & materials you will need for most of your projects so all you really need to bring along is you!  Our workshops are mostly made up of 3 hour long projects where you will learn new skills, leave with something new and the ability to fashion another in the comfort of your own home.

We stock a unique range of sewing and paper crafting supplies along with local designers works including Uniquely Cedra, Hats by Elayne, Trinkets by Design, Love Like Red, Sugar and Candy, Thread Theory, Apple Turnover and many more.  Many of the pieces we carry are totally one of a kind or vintage. We are currently showcasing art work by Freyja Zazu, Andrea Soos, Jessie Beauvilliers and Alexa Gibbs.

If there’s something you would like to see offered at The Makehouse, please feel free to share your ideas by email jenny@themakehouse.ca.
